Eternal Sonata (xbox 360)


It could only originate in Japan, Chopin (yes the famous composer) lying on his deathbed enters a dream world, where he possesses the gift of magic. In this land, however, magic is the side effect of a terrible and fatal disease. Those who can wield magic are shunned and feared so they tend to keep their powers a secret.

Now it so happens that in this dream world inside Chopin's head, lives an evil count (thank heavens for spellchecks), who has been oppressing the people with extreme taxes that are creating quite a bit of poverty and unrest This is when Chopin enters to save the day.

30+ hours of RPG heaven it appears, with the title at number 2 in the Japanese game charts. Due US and Europe September 2007 for Xbox 360, aka Trusty Bell: Chopin's Dream, Trusty Bell: Chopin no Yume

Looks gorgeous in the video... And I could listen to high pitched females speaking Japanese in squeaky voices all day...

This is also a nice demo download that is worth the effort in trying to DL the japaense demo (that's in english) if one is able to bypass the Xbox Live's region lockout codes.

..

Which I have not yet been smart enough to do....

Inside Chopins head? But, but, there isn't much left of it you know... And I'm afraid of bugs too...

I played the Xbox magazine demo and didn't care for it...
Probably because I'm not a fan of turned based games.

The only turned based game that I might pick up in the near future would be Lost Odyssey, that is looking to be pretty damn cool.

Hi Fk, indeed it's got cuteness shining out its a.... erm ...Box art.....

Indeed Timerunner looked at the changing user profile on 360 to enable me to download Japanese 360 demos a while ago, too much like hard work... why do they make it so difficult

(Drinks Coca Cola....) I think we get the chance to climb inside Chopin's head, before he dies.. otherwise... well ... erm... all the lights would be switched out for a start...

Deitrix you extraordinary scoop finder you....the help the elderly wasn't the sideline attraction I though it might be.... maybe i should have offered free pron torrents.... Thank you for these... I'll be on em quicker than two shakes of a lambs tail...

(grabs hatchet.. heads off to his local farmers....)

Hasn't Chopin died yet? I really believe I've seen his grave y'know...


Oh, and.. DROOOOOOOOOOOOL

The Elderly said...

Stupendous Deitrix I thank you, Seamus thanks you and Olga.... well... her 3d vertices are quivering...

(cleans up after FK.....)

Chopin dead? well there is only one way of being sure.... (grabs two shovels...)

gnome said...

Ah, but that would be a disgrace to musical history dearest and wise Elderly. Better check Wikipedia instead...

The Elderly said...

(reads wikipedia, spills pizza sauce on t-shirt... reads some more.......)

damn..... so thats definite proof, that means that this game in no way bears any semblance to reality....

....bugger! what a let down....

(puts two shovels back in shovel cupboard....)
